Your retreat is on a quiet country road- only minutes from the quaint town square of Newton, NC, 14 min. from Hickory and 20 min from Lake Norman. Your stay includes a fully furnished, private 2 bedroom home and use of our pool and relaxing deck.

The space

A very clean, comfortable and fully furnished 2 bedroom/ 1 bath apartment with full kitchen, living and dining combo. There is one queen size bed, one full and one twin bed, a fold out couch and an air mattress. The space is located across from our home and on our small, family farm which currently includes fields to wander,a playset for kids and gardens, orchards, chickens, guineas,cat and dog to see. If interested, we will arrange for you or your children to be involved in our farm chores and will share produce from our garden when available. The grounds are not always "Martha Stewart"-manicured, but our commitment to you is a clean and comfortable home-away-from-home.

Guest access

Our swimming pool and large outdoor patio area are available to you... a kids playset and a bonfire area and a grill for relaxing evenings upon request. For those staying longer or for messy emergencies we have a washer and dryer available next door upon request.

Interaction with guests

Interaction with our family is up to you. The Retreat is situated so that it is very quiet. If rest is what you need, we will honor that by keeping the noise of daily life to a minimum. That said, we are home most of the time. If you like to be out and about, we do, too! We homeschool and have children from young to high school. We have daily work that must be done outside. We enjoy family cookouts and bonfires when we are home. We enjoy meeting new people and learning more about the world through their stories.

Other things to note

If your travel plans warrant, we can provide you with a simple meal upon arrival for an added fee. Please let us know if that would make your life easier as you travel. We will be glad to help.

This was our first experience of staying at an Airbnb property, and it was wonderful. Laura and her family were amazing and so hospitable. We would definitely consider staying at Scion Farm Retreat again.

Do stay here! Laura is an amazing host and the whole place is beautiful, comfortable, and spotless. We needed a place to stay after an out of town wedding that could accommodate our family of several couples. Laura was easy to communicate with and extremely hospitable and friendly. The property is gorgeous. We had to hit the road early so we just had a few peeks around the farm, but next time we come through I'll be sure to arrange for a longer stay. Thanks for everything!

We brought our two young grandchildren here and had a fantastic experience. They held baby chicks and fresh eggs and loved the trampoline! Laura and her family were incredible hosts!

What an ideal place for my adult daughter and 1 year old granddaughter to stay for a few days while prepping for her sister's wedding in Catawba. Laura was a gem! She was helpful, kind, and went above and beyond to make their stay comfortable. Thank you! We'll definitely be back again next time we are in town.

This is a wonderful place very close to downtown Hickory. My son loved seeing the chickens and other animals. Laura was a very gracious host, kept us very well informed of anything that may be going on in the property and all her family made us feel very welcome without being overbearing. We would definitely stay here again!

Laura's place was awesome. Laura was very nice, easy accessible to communicate, have everything we need the whole weekend. She gave us eggs (fresh from her farm which was yummy), baked us some cookies and welcomed us with a nice & personal "welcome sign". Will definitely recommend her house. Thank you Laura!

We feel anyone would be blessed by staying with Laura and her wonderful family. The apartment is very well equipped and they are always very willing to help with any problems. We would truly recommend this rental to all who would wish to stay in the Newton, NC area. Couldn't be more pleased!

"LIFE is Good" would be an accurate life motto for us. We have deep respect for human life, animal life, plant life and GOD - The Giver of Life. We honor the diversity that comes with those lives. Because of this motto, we have 7 children, 20+ farm animals and I could never count how many plants that we care for. The Life of our marriage has been tended to for 26 years now and we thoroughly enjoy learning about the interesting lives of those who visit us here. The days here at Scion Farm have their share of chaos and peace. Sorrows and joys. Messes and beauty. And through it all, we hold that LIFE is Good and we will keep working to promote long as we live. We would be honored to have you share a few moments of your life with us here. As hosts, we know that every guest has different reasons for their travel here. We are as glad to give you complete solitude as we are to visit a bit with you- if the time allows. Know that whatever your reason for visiting, we hope you feel right at home.
